      I too would find it handy too, I usually have it set to monitor activity
      from my son but it is only one window of many I have running on my PC one of
      which is my TV ( I have a tuner card installed and not a 'real' TV at my
      home). Well sometimes I get involved in one of my other windows and totally
      forget (getting old...) to check the APRSIS32 window and see where he has
      already arrived at his destination. :(

      PS Thanks Lynn for this fine program(s).

      Thank you so much for this addition. I mentioned in a post a couple of
      days ago that this feature would really help me, and here it is! I've
      tried it today, and it appears to be working as expected.

      You also asked in another post what features from uiview people would
      like to see. One that I use constantly is an add-in for uiview called
      "Station Movement Alarm". If a station moves more than "X" (programmable
      in yards) from it's previous position, a user-selectable sound file is
      played. I have it play a chime.

      I have the distance set to 30 yards. So when the car is parked, no alert
      chime sounds. If the next position is more than 30 yards from the last
      one, the chime sounds. Simple, and unbelievably convenient.

      It would be nice if something like this could be optionally added to the
      "Locked Tracking" feature.
